Mankind began its journey in the jungles and then survived through stone age, iron age, bronze age, rapid industrialization and currently, the age of information technology. All these years, as the mankind progressed, the kind of crimes prevalent in the society also kept mutating. In the age of Information Technology, all the information and data is first transformed into simple digits 0 & 1 and then processed or transported to different locations using some kind of medium, wired or wireless. During the storage and transportation of this data, it becomes totally vulnerable to attacks from delinquent individuals. There is continuous risk of attempted pilferage of sensitive information, such as personal and financial details of the customers or clients, by an individual/group of individuals. The sudden increase in cases of cyber crime and crimes under IT Act 2011 is testimony to this scenario. The companies operating in IT Enabled Services (ITES) space are finding it increasingly difficult to protect their sensitive data from daily attacks from obscure hackers sitting at a remote location in another part of the world.
